God is good all the time. Even when life is super messy!

Just thinking about all the roles we play daily as women totally exhausts me. My to-do list ALWAYS feels like a mile long. I never get it all done. Some days I really don’t even try! Plus, trying to find “me time” each day to fuel my mind, body and soul is a struggle every single day. You too?

The only way we’re gonna get through it without always banging ourselves up for our failures is to embrace God’s beautiful gift of grace and then pour that gift out to the big and little people in our lives each day.

Feel like you never measure up?

I struggle with that a lot. Like a lot a lot. But I have finally realized, it’s okay.

I’ll never be perfect. I will never fit a size zero. I will never have perfect hair. Or perfect makeup. And forget about perfect nails or the latest fashions. It’s not who I am.

Sometimes we forget to be real. We put on our smiley faces, tell the world we are “fine” and go about our day, barely scratching the surface with our husbands, family and friends. Sometimes we even fool ourselves. It’s so stinkin’ exhausting, isn’t it?

Let’s be real. With God. Ourselves. Our family and friends. Let’s live our lives #showeredingrace

My prayer is that we will live lives of authenticity. Find freedom in being who God created us to be. I pray we will choose to be joyful during the difficult moments. Recognize that God is with us in the big and little decisions of our days. Be real with the people God has placed in our life. There’s truly so much freedom and joy in being who God created us to be.

Extend grace and a warm smile or hug to those who need it today.

The One who saved us all showers us with His abundant grace, moment by moment, day by day! I need to own this truth and celebrate it more in my own life, don’t you? That’s why I created this site so we can all be in the boat together friends, reminding each other of God’s great love for us and glorify Jesus in the middle of our busy, beautiful lives!
